WEATHER:Not too bad for the last day of the count. Partly cloudy skies, temps in the 30's, with a strong north wind, and flurries off and on throughout the day.

WATERFOWL: The end of the season; 4WW Scoters, 14 LT Ducks, 8 Common Goldeneye, 7 RB and 3 Common Mergansers, and 1 RN Grebe.

GULLS: We finally had some varity, with 1 Black-legged Kittiwake, 1 Thayer's, 2 Great Black-backed, 1 Ring-billed and 115 Herring Gulls.

OTHERBIRDS: The sixth Snowy Owl of the fall made a brief stop at the tip this morning, before heading south over the bay. This Owl was almost pure white, unlike the Owls from the past couple days.

Stay tuned for a final post wrapping up the 2008 fall season.

Good Birding,

Tim,

I check daily. When do you give the final wrap up you mention?

With Anticipation,

Bill
